this is a big risk i think the president obama. he had to show that he was a leader, minimize any damage, look like he's engaged, and by the way, there's no -- how does he do that? he flew back from florida, state of the white house. he was on the phone with governors and mayors all up and down at eastern seaboard all day, monday and tuesday. chris christie, the governor of new jersey to his state was hardest hit by hurricane sandy has made some very favorable comments, a republican who spent a lot of time bashing obama, over the last couple of months, made some really favorable comments about the president. said he deserves a lot of credit for the storm handle but here's a moment in which the president can you show great leadership and an opportunity to sort of demonstrate the power of the white house and the power of incumbency, or he can screw it up and botch everything and end up losing reelection probably because of it. i think he's probably tilting towards the leadership side now. there have not been a serious critiques of obama's handling of storm's aftermath. meanwhile, what is mitt ro

it is significant. early voting is aco part of the obama strategy to get reelected. democrats are more likely to do early vote republicans turn out on election day and not engage in early voting. the president needs a boost in ohio, florida and seeing big crowds and like in nevada out west as well the other thing to note, the president's travels were significant . they have thought if they look at polls suggesting that the president has a big lead in ohio. why is he coming here six times, the obama camp may be leading but they realize they don't have it locked up f. they had it locked up they wouldn't be here and in they had wisconsin locked up. that is a democraticitate that could go republican because of paul ryan . the president points out that mitt romney has been in places like virginia and florida that he wanted to wrap up and bottom line. both sides have a lot of battle grounds that are up for grabs including right here in ohio. >> edhenry. in mentor ohio. >>> and now to send scott to south carolina in congressman extraordinarye. what is it? a president visiting key states like ohio and wisc
